These schedules are as accurate as I can get them right now, but some questions STILL exist that may take a while to iron out, mainly involving out of state teams. I also still need to add some big college games and the NFL games with local players. - - - understanding my weekly schedule page lay-out - - - I start by making the schedule for Region IV, then D, then III, then C. So, if a Region C school plays a Region IV school (like Grayson vs. Carroll), it will ONLY be listed in the Region IV section, since I did those first (game location doesn't matter). This is followed by games of other Va. teams which give bonus points to a Region IV, D or C school. Next is the out-of-state section. Schools listed in CAPS are the ones that give bonus points to teams in Regions C, D or IV, so some games have BOTH teams in CAPS (like BIG CREEK vs. MONTCALM). Sometimes you'll see a game with no team in caps - these are other teams from my neighboring counties of McDowell (WV) & Pike (KY) that I keep up with for my game-night scoreboard. * means the team is a private school and doesn't count in the ratings. + means the game is "special" ... look for details down the page. Regional college games, "important" college games & NFL games in which former locals will be playing are listed at the bottom. I also note homecoming games and schedule changes as I find out about them (since VA has a history of Fall weather wackiness), so the "down-the-road" pages are usually updated weekly, and the "current" week page is updated as needed (sometimes nightly). I also add state rankings whenever possible. ALWAYS check if you plan to attend a game. I do NOT check with the schools for changes, but I do regularly check newspapers, msg. boards and a few school web sites. (Ky. & Tenn. are notorious to move games to Thur. night when a teachers' in-service day is scheduled for a Friday.) Now, a note about the North Carolina teams : NC does 2 things that's a bit "foreign" to us. First, when a large town / city has more than 1 school, they'll add the city before the school name, like (Greensboro) Grimsley and (Winston-Salem) Atkins. 2nd, when a school name is used more than once in the state, they'll add the city before the school name. So A.C. Reynolds in Asheville usually becomes Asheville Reynolds & R.J. Reynolds in Winston-Salem usually becomes W.S. Reynolds, & T.W. Andrews in High Point is usually called HP Andrews. - - - interesting 2008 schedule tidbits - - - ATTENTION : Piedmont District & Mtn. Empire District fans - some games hae kickoff at 7:30, others at 7 p.m. William Fleming & Patrick Henry-Roanoke are still sharing PH's new stadium, so they'll both have some Saturday games. Holston, Brookville, Robert E. Lee (Staunton) & Tallwood wrap up their regular season on Oct. 24. Auburn, Glenvar & Craig Co. have no games in August. William Byrd also play 10 straight weeks. Lee goes 7 weeks without playing a Va. opponent (8/23 - 10/10) Hurley plays 5 out-of-state teams (4 from WV) and only 3 District teams. Circle Sat., Sept. 27th on your calendar - that's when Gretna and Graham meet at Mitchell Stadium.
